We know how hard it can be getting back into the swing of things after having a baby, with a demanding newborn, endless feeding sessions and a post-pregnancy body devoid of all strength and tone (let’s not even mention the fact that we may have left our pelvic floor in the delivery room either!).
So what’s a mama to do to carve out a bit of time to look after herself without leaving the baby at home? Turn to the lovely team of qualified trainers at Breathe Pilates and their popular post-natal pilates class to take care of the job… baby included!
This boutique Pilates studio in Novena (you can read more about our own experience here!) recognized the need for new mothers to have a space where they can do gentle post-natal exercise, tailored to their specific needs, while getting to bring their babies along too. Perfect for mamas who find it hard to get away after the birth of their newborns, these classes bridge the gap between pre-natal pilates and regular pound-the-pavement type exercise programmes. Building strength and endurance where mamas really need it – in the pelvic floor, deep core, and shoulder girdle – strength gains are made in direct relation to babies’ growth.
Held every Wednesday at 11:30am at their airy Novena studio, mamas will benefit from the lovely bonding time spent with their new baby, as well as the chance to workout without the guilt. It’s also a wonderful way to bond with other new mothers, creating community and camaraderie over pelvic tilts and push-ups! And don’t think that bubs will be left in the stroller either! Babies are in on the action too and are used to add resistance and variety to a mama’s workout.
So if you’re ready to regain your core strength with baby in tow, call Breathe Pilates today at 9835 5683 to register… and get ready to feel strong again, mama!
